Hi Experts.  I have a new Asus server.  I chose to put 3 256GB Samsung SSD drives and setup as RAID 5.  The system works well, and the intel Raid configuration suggests the array is "NORMAL."  The problem is that drives 2 and 3 continue to flash red.  I simulated a drive replacement to start a rebuild on the 3rd drive.  The rebuild went well, and once complete the 3rd drive was solid green (like the 1st).  When I rebooted the server to check the status (it was normal), once it got back into the MS server 2012 OS, it started flashing red again.  Any suggestions would be helpful.

Server is:  ASUS| RS720-X7/RS8 R   (16GB RAM), 1-XEON Proc.

Drives are:  SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
